DFW Area bike fitting?

Any experience with bike fitting in the DFW area? Best place?

I read some posts where people talk about how critical proper fit is, but how common is it be fitted, or do you just hop on a bike and say "That feels about right"?

Richardson Bike Mart - Frisco location. For the life of me I can never remember the guy's name, but someone will mention it. I've been meaning to make an appointment to get the fit on my Fuji reviewed. I had a fitting when I had my last bike built up, tried to transfer the position over to the Fuji the best I could, but I know my cleats and possibly seat position is not quite right at the moment.

Tom Ernst at Richardson Bike Mart in Frisco. Heck of a nice guy, been trained by Serotta, Seven and others. He really knows how to fit a bike.
Ask for Tom. Some of the other guys up there are total yahoos.

Either Joel Hernandez or Mark (Last name??) at Richardson Bike Mart in Richardson. Both of these guys have helped me tremendously and got me fitted to a "T" on my bike.

I think you may mean Mike Gacki in Richardson -- he's really good at it also. Very professional.
